Earlier tonight, the ridiculously sexy Idris Elba won one of the top honors–the 2012 Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television award for “Luther.” The British actor thanked his daughter, Isan, who he said was having a Golden Globes party at home. Sweet!
And actress Octavia Spencer also won one of the top awards tonight: Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture award for “The Help.” She was shocked by the win, but pulled it together enough during her acceptance speech to thank everyone, including Martin Luther King, Jr., whose birthday we observe tomorrow.
She commented, “Martin Luther King Jr. said it best: All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance!”
Congrats to Octavia!
Actor Morgan Freeman received the distinguished Cecil B. DeMille award. And as he thanked the iconic Sidney Poitier, who also received this award, for presenting him with the accomplishment, Morgan said he would rename the award in his house to the Sidney Poitier award. Nice!
And congrats to YBF actor David Harewood, whose “Homeland” cast won the much deserved award for Best Television Series – Drama.
